Perseus and Medusa

Perseus and Medusa

Storyboard Text

  • GO!
  • First you lock me up in a tower and now you are sending me and my baby, Perseus, to drown at sea!
  • Hmmm?
  • NO!
  • Marry me?
  • King Acrisius was told by a prophesy that one his grandson would kill him, so he locked up his only daughter, Danae. Zeus saw Danae and felt pity for her so visited her disguised as shower of gold making Danae pregnant. When the king heard that Danae had a baby he was furious and intended on her drowning at sea.
  • Just when Danae was sure she and her baby, Perseus, would drown a fisherman called Dictys found them and cared for them.
  • Yay! I have killed Medusa And Pegasus has srang out of her severed neck. I will now go back and turn the king to stone with her head.
  • Dictys had a cruel brother called Polydectes, King of Seriphos. One day Polydectes saw Danae and immediately fell in love with her. Perseus, Danae's son, hated Polydectes. The next day Polydectes asked Danae to marry him but she said no! Polydectes then thought because Perseus hates him Danae is saying no to him so he made an evil plan to get rid of Perseus.
  • I shall have a fake wedding and ask for a fine horse because I know that Perseus cannot bring one for he is too poor, then he shall ask what may I bring you instead? And I shall say "Bring me the gorgon Medusa's head" and then he shall die on his quest. Mua ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
  • Perseus set off for his quest and realised that he had no idea where Medusa was, so asked the Graeae taking their eye as hostage. When they told him where to find her the Gods gave him winged sandals, a shield in which you can see your reflection and a sickle. Perseus also took the helmet of darkness from the underworld.
  • But on Perseus's way home he saw this beautiful girl, called Andromeda, and fell in love with her, but she was chained to a rock and about to be devoured by a sea monster, so Perseus saved and married her. After Perseus turned Polydectes to stone he set off to find his grandfather. On his way Perseus did a discus contest and accidentally killed his grandfather with a discus.
